Roundabout-a-Story

“Storytelling is about sharing – not just the sharing of words and plot, but the sharing of emotions and experiences” Society for Storytellers

We need funds now to help those who are experiencing unparalleled levels of stress. Money donated will enable Roundabout to provide a mental health life line during the crisis. It is sobering to consider the how deeply many children and adults who will have suffered over these months of lockdown: bereavement, depression, family dysfunction, isolation, abuse, deprivation. We need to ensure that Roundabout is still functioning and ready to help.

We asked some of the children we support what they liked about Dramatherapy and how they now feel. This is what they said:

“Someone that I can talk to about everything that’s happened”

“It helped me realise that I don’t have to be in my room and feel sad.”

“It’s helped me feel not as alone with what I go through at home”

“Less worried and more happy”

“It makes me feel happy and safe and comfortable”

We hope you enjoy listening to Roundabout-a-Story.
